Driving Big Speakers with Strength and Dynamism
This amp system generates high current with a massive transformer and audio-grade capacitors. Circuitry features discrete output transistors for low distortion and effortless driving power. High current assures accurate control, restoring energy and vitality to your music. Non-phase-shift circuitry, meanwhile, focuses the audio image and reproduces a
wide frequency bandwidth to maximize Hi-Res Audio and vinyl playback.
Rated at 100W/Ch (8 Ohms, 20 Hz–20 kHz, 0.08% THD, 2 Channels Driven, FTC), the TX-8270 is our best stereo receiver for driving speakers.
Smooth Analog Signal
Onkyo developed Vector Linear Shaping Circuitry (VLSC) to reassemble the audio signal to its original form following processing. Unlike conventional filters, VLSC removes pulse noise generated in D/A conversion, allowing the sound wave to be reproduced with extremely high fidelity for a smooth analog signal.
An dedicated DAC for NET/USB Audio Distribution and Zone 2 pre-outs send any audio (even streamed audio) to a second room equipped with a power amp and a pair of speakers, perhaps on the deck or in the garage. Play the same source in both rooms or a different source in Zone 2.
Music Made Easy with Chromecast built-in*
Stream any music from your smartphone, laptop, or PC to the TX-8270 with ease. Control playback with Chromecast enabled apps you know and love from your iPhone, iPad, Android™ phone or tablet, Mac® or Windows® laptop, or Chromebook™.
Stream Anything with DTS Play-Fi®*
DTS Play-Fi is a wireless protocol that works with any audio app on mobiles and PC. Flick whatever’s playing to the receiver, even different sources to different components at the same time.
A Stereo Receiver that Connects Everything
A beautiful stereo receiver crafted for hi-fi enthusiasts, the TX-8270 is also exclusively equipped with connections allowing it to serve as an up-to-date amp for TV entertainment. Joining analog, digital, phono, and USB inputs are HDMI® terminals (connect an Apple TV or similar) together with a Next Generation Network Audio platform. Cast music from familiar apps quickly and easily.
Supports 4K HDR and BT.2020 Video Pass-through
